What are your general comments?

"I had seven interviews, four with researchers, two with administration, and one with a student. All asked specific questions, but many quickly digressed to "let me tell you about my research/program." They were all essentially conversational once I had found a point of commonality with the person. The only "difficult" interview was with one PhD who actually expected me to demonstrate my thinking ability; I worked hard to answer his questions, but I also really enjoyed the challenge and seemed to satisfy him by being upfront, honest, and unflinching.
